GeForce RTX 3060 Ti vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti features a GPU core clock speed of 1410 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 4864 Stream Processors, 152 Texture Address Units, and 80 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1825 MHz, and 16384 MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 4608 Stream Processors, 288 TAUs, and 128 ROPs.

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 6800 XT is -100% faster than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 524288 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (Unknown) MB/sec
Difference: 524288 (-100%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is much (more or less 145%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 214320 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 311280 (145%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT will be a lot (approximately 107%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 112800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 120800 (107%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
